I finished my 21st sketchbook today with two sketches in Brighton.
First’ ‘Pen to Paper’ from the Flour Pot Bakery on Sydney Street.
Followed by Jersey Street in Hanover.Filling a sketchbook can come with a sense of achievement, but it can also be a bit sad, filing away all those memories of the past few months.
I decided to get that difficult first page out of the way with a sketchbook trip down memory lane. The bottle of Bombay Sapphire is just for scale. Honest.
How much is that doggie in the window? Adelaide Crescent. (Sorry pooch lovers, there isn’t really a dog in this picture, no matter how hard you look)
It’s February and it feels like it’s been dark forever! To combat all those winter blues, I decided to add a bit of Naples yellow and Permanent Rose to my palette.
These chaps must have been feeling the same, as they completely removed their windows to let in more light.
Seems a bit drastic, particularly with snow predicted. Still, those Regency enthusiasts know what they are doing.
If you are feeling a bit ‘grayscale’, I recommend taking a walk through Hanover. It has more colour than a Dulux swatch.
